situation room". >>> president obama says his re-election proves that americans want action on the economy, not just politics as usual: just days after his victory, he's laying out a framework for compromise with the republicans to avoid $600 billion in automatic spending cuts and tax hikes in the next year. he says he's open to new ideas, but he warns the federal government can't cut its way to prosperity. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue. and that means asking the wealthest americans to pay a little more in taxes. that's how we did it -- that's how we did it in the 1990s when bill clinton was president. that's how we can reduce the deficit while still making the investments we need to build a strong middle class and a strong economy. that's the only way we can still afford to train our workers or help our kids pay for college, or make sure that good jobs and clean energy or high-tech manufacturing don't end up in countries like china. now, already i've put forward a detailed plan that allows us to make these investments while r

remember about this election? >> well, the first thing i'll remember is the way people turned out to vote in this election in the face of tremendous voter suppression efforts. and i just think they've been really american heroes because they stood up and said, "you are not going to take the vote away from us." some people stood in line for six, seven and eight hours. some had been in areas that had been damaged by the storm. and i just think that they were there upholding democracy. so that's the first thing that i remember about it. >> they were also there making delicious pecan tarts. because when i voted, the kids in the school were selling baking goods, and they were having a great time of it. what will you remember? >> oh, that's a tough one to say. i think that for a lot of conservatives and a lot of republicans this was a very disappointing election that opened a lot of folks' eyes to some of the deeper changes that have happened in the country, much more so in some respects than the 2008 election -- which i think a lot of folks wrote off as a one off, as a fluke, something that re
was real. though the timing is perhaps, perhaps suspect. one week ago. six days before the u.s. election. national security correspondent jennifer griffin is following this breaking story from the pentagon. >> reporter: at 4:50 a.m. november 1, days before the u.s. presidential election, two iranian su-25 frog foot fighter jets like these intercepted and fired twice upon an unmanned, unarmed u.s. m-2-1 predator drone over the persian gulf. it's the first time the iranians ever fired on a u.s. drone. the shots missed on both attempted. iran's fighter pilots briefly pursued the drone that landed safely at an undisclosed location. >> incident occurred over international waters. 16 nautical miles off the coastline. aircraft was never in iranian air space. it was always flying in international air space. the internationally recognized territorial limit is 12 nautical miles off the coast. we never entered the 12 nautical mile limit. >> asked whether the incident was an act of war, the pentagon spokesman said he would not legally label it. adding the state department had protested through the s
he produced an electorate. whoever won, we would wake up on election day and produce a little different electorate than anticipated. that is what happened. the electorate was more non- white than most polls anticipated. there was that. the debate had a huge impact. the first debate fundamentally changed the race and put romney back with and range. obama was able to stabilize at the end. but romney presented himself as an acceptable alternative. romney was able to walk over the threshold. in the end, he never addressed the demographic challenge. and the third debate he went back on some of the language. he talked about amnesty and deportation and basically ensured that number among hispanics. barack obama increased its share of votes among hispanics. that is a statement more about the republican party than the democratic party. >> that is not two waves. one was out of the democratic convention. that was a surge for the democrats. the second was a chance for the challenger to put himself on the stage. i think people were talking about romney's momentum. he got back in the race.
guy who really masterminded so much of what we did in this election. he did such a great job as campaign manager, and he will go into more granular detail in what he saw as the results on tuesday. here is jim messina. >> hello, everyone, good to be with you. i want to start out by congratulating team romney for a hard-fought campaign. they were hard-working americans who wanted to make the country better and use the political process to do that. we wish them sleep and some time with family. i want to congratulate all the volunteers for what they did on election day. we had over 109,000 people canvassing on doors, double that on the phones, and they executed a historic ground game. the reason they were motivated to do this it was not because of any analytical tools or tech product that we gave them. they were working to build this campaign because they believe in barack obama and his message and the policy he moved forward -- to move this country forward. that is what won in this election. across battleground states, we are currently sitting at 50.4. i think we will get a litt
to have moved slightly to the democrats, so that if you have a kind of normal base election, the democrats have a very slight advantage. i think most people say we will continue to grow over time, unless the republicans do something to make inroads into some of the court demographics. if you look at the house races, you have to be cautious because the -- about the big message you are drawing. yes, the democrats gained what looks to me by my count about eight house seats. half their gains have to do with coming from illinois and california and are largely redistricting gains. but republican still control the house. what would you say was the democrats' message this election cycle, in terms of the issues are policy? they talked about republican extremism but, what is the strong message that the congressional level? it was two-pronged. one, medicare, and two, the ryan budget. medicare is one of the examples , and the right and budget shows different priorities, and republican parties are wrong. that message did not really .orke it was not a decisive win, certainly at the house level, for that
several presidents. >>> then, what happens when you mix big data and a presidential election? the results are fascinating and a little scary. it might well be the future of politics in america. >>> also, sea barriers, wetlands, futuristic construction materials. what is the answer to climate change and how can we all adapt to this new normal of hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods? i'll talk to jeffrey sachs and "time" magazine's brian walsh. >>> and why is there such an antiqued way of voting? i'll take a look. but first here's my take. growing up in the india in the 1960s and '70s, ales thought of america as the future. it was the place where the newest technology, the best gadgets, the latest fads seemed to originate. seemingly exotic political causes, women's liberation, gay rights, ageism, always seemed to get their start on the streets of the united states orthopedic in the courts and legislatures. for me, tuesday's election brought back that sense of america as the future. the presidential race has been discussed as one that was about nothing with no message or mandate, but i don't th
have spent $100 million to get no one elected this year. the coke brothers, and while dropping that cash may very made them feel important, the math said it was not money well spent. outside groups spent more than a billion on the election, many of those groups do not seem to have gotten much for that money. i wonder if they would do with it if they could get it back. now it's time for "the last word" with laerns o'donnell. have a great night. >>> come on. you know what i'm going to say. you do. you know i've been dying to say this for a year. ann colter was right. >> well, i'll put it in a nutshell, if we don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee and he'll lose. >> the president dramatically down. >> you'll see a romney land slide. >> it's going to be a great day tomorrow. >> shellacking, repudation, melt down. >> i believe we can seize this future together. >> four more for 44. >> a decisive victory. >> 2008 was not a fluke. >> his emphatic victory tonight. >> it was over in about five minutes. >> we are not as divided as our politics suggest. >> i won't just be yo

these developments has been managed, and if so, to what purpose. today two days after the president's election, we learned that two iranian fighter jets, like this one, attacked one of our unmanned an unarmed predator drones. that attack took place 16 miles off the coast of kuwait in international airspace. happened last thursday, but an administration official has remained silent until today. today we learned that boeing will be slashing another 10 percent of management jobs in its defense division by the end of thii year in an effort to cut more than $2 billion in costs. boeing says it cannot project exactly how many workers will lose their jobs as a result. and boeing is going to some great lengths to insist that these layoffs have nothing to do whatsoever with the sequestered defense cuts set to take place next year. you will recall that less than two months ago the obama white house was so intent on avoiding publicity like this it offered to indemnify government contractors for losses and find if they held off on issuing left notices. that is required by the warrant act until after the electi

details. the "wall street journal" reveals, the manager of president obama's election campaign. the campaign he said wanted to spend heavily starting immediately on ads blasting away at mitt romney to shape voters' impressions before mr. romney had the money to do it for himself. if it doesn't work, we're not going to have enough money to go have a second theory in the fall. mr. messina, according to people in the meeting. the president gave his approval. the risky obama campaign strategy worried ann romney. the "washington post" writes today, ann would come to me and said eric, what are we going to do about this? said eric fehrnstrom. another romney adviser said the group think today is if we were to go back and change one thing, we would spend more money and more strongly defend mitt, push back on the rich guy, the tax rate issue, the bain capital issue. of course, pushing back against the image of mitt romney is a rich guy who paid an extraordinarily low income tax rate and was a bain capital profiteer and based on layoffs and outsourcing would be pushing back against the tr
